He was so lucky because he was given a bronze medal that a man won for the 100 yard dash race! We can't imagine Jennifer Jones giving anyone her gold medal for curling! We were excited to watch them win at school today and then when the women's hockey won gold we went crazy!!
Mr. Lochhead also had some pins to show us from when he was in Moscow, Russia.
He showed us his Olympic bag and key chain and some Russian wooden dolls that stack inside each other.
We found out that in Russia, if you misbehave in school, your parents get called in to the principal and they will lower their salary if you don't behave. Everyone has to wear the same outfit in school and everyone has to be in the army.
Would you like to live in Russia? Thanks to Mr. Lochhead for sharing your experience with us.
